I fell in love with these papers from Authentique when I saw them in a sneak peek in July. I thought they looked just like old scarves… and I love old “aunt scarves”! I finally got hold of them and thought the “scarves theme” and the colors were perfect for this picture of our daughter playing and dressing up with her friend. I also thought that all this was perfect for the September Challenge over at Scrap the Girls.
The challenge is to use clips on the layout. I think any clips would go with the theme of this layout but these who look like clothes hangers from Tim Holtz are extra suitable!
I wanted the papers to look like different scarves hanging behind the picture. To get them the way I wanted I first draw them by hand on a white cardstock, then transferred them onto transparent paper and finally onto the patterned papers. I choose to cut them in layers as paper piecing to get some structure.
The background is colored with Aridondack Color Washes (thanks Leonie for the inspiration – I bought some straight away!) and acrylic paint.
The clothes hangers (clips) and some beautiful buttons are hanging on a thick, colored thread underneath the picture.
Thank you SO much for looking!!!
